Former Mathare United and Sofapaka head coach Salim Ali has been named the Ulinzi Stars FC head coach.
The tactician, as reported on the club’s official website ulinzistarsfc.com, takes over from Sammy Simiyu who will thus serve as Salim’s assistant.
-We are happy to have Ali with us. He is the best qualified coach in Kenya and we trust he is going to deliver silverware. His work starts immediately where he heads to the Recruit Training School in Eldoret to pick up players from the Inter Divisions that are currently ongoing.
-He will also come back and pick the best players from the 14 that we took from the CDF Cup. We will give him a free hand to choose his team and we have faith in him that is why we have handed him the mantle, Chairman Lt. Col. JS Mwinyikai was quoted as saying on the site.
Salim was sacked at Sofapaka towards the end of the 2012 season as the team registered a poor run of results.
